Iran calls off Major Hajj to Mecca.

Iran calls off Major Hajj to Mecca. (IH).

The spokesman of parliament's Judicial and Legal Affairs Committee has said Major Hajj has been cancelled due to the severance of ties between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the impact of a break in ties between Iran and Saudi Arabia on this year’s Hajj, Mohammad Ali Esfanani said, "Iran should have taken the first step to cut its ties with Saudi Arabia after the Mina tragedy. After committing all these crimes, Saudi Arabia should not have been allowed to make a decision in this regard because the Saudis martyred many innocent pilgrims and now they have shamelessly executed Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr."


Organizing Hajj pilgrimage for Iranians will be decided by top officials of the government, head of Hajj and pilgrimage organization Saeed Ohadi said on Monday, IRNA reported.

Ohadi made the remarks in a statement in reaction to public query concerning Hajj pilgrimage in Iranian year of 1395 (2016).

In the statement, Ohadi said that any decision concerning Hajj should be taken by Supreme Leader Office and the government.

He said that he released the statement following the public query carried by the media and the cyber space news networks about Hajj pilgrimage next year.
